Cells creating proteins on ribosomes
The sequence of amino acids within a protein
Enzymes that catalyse the breaking down of peptide bonds
Either the coiling or folding of the sequence of amino acids
A type of secondary structure in which the sequence coils
A type of secondary structure in which the sequence folds
The final shape of (most) proteins. This happens using a mixture of hydrophobic and hydrophillic interactions, disulfide bonds, ionic bonds and hydrogen bonds
An external factor acting on the protein (such as heat) that causes the tertiary structure to unravel, leaving the protein unable to function.
A type of protein in which the tertiary structure forms a spherical shape. They will often be metabolic molecules.
A type of protein in which the tertiary structure form long fibres. They will often be structural molecules.
The final structure level for some proteins. It will either hold two polypeptide subunits together, or a polypeptide and an inorganic component
Globular protein consisting of a protein and a prosthetic group
Structural protein consisting of three tertiary structures, coiled together by hydrogen bonds
